DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) -- A volunteer firefighter in southeast Alabama has been charged with trafficking methamphetamine.

Houston County Sheriff Andy Hughes said 30-year-old Gene Chandler Elliott Jr., of Cottonwood also faces felony theft charges.

Elliott, who was arrested Nov. 6, had served with the Madrid volunteer fire department.

Hughes said deputies seized more than two ounces of meth and numerous weapons from the old Madrid Volunteer Fire Department building where Elliott allegedly sold the drug.

Elliott's bond was set at $65,000. He remains in the Houston County Jail.
